About a week ago i felt a lump appear on my middle joint of my right pointing finger. It started with a pins and needles feeling and then minor sharp shoots of pain whenever i had to use that part of my finger. The lump after a couple of days had more or less disappeared and wasnt causing me as much pain until i played racket ball last night. The friction of holding and using the racket gave me some discomfort. The lump is visible today and im concerned to what it is? Hope you can help.

Hi my husband has had pain in his shoulder for 6 weeks and pins and needles and shooting pain down his arm and fingers..he s seen 2 different GP s and they say its muscular and have given Naproxin and Cocodamol..its making no difference..I think he has a trapped nerve as I suffer from Sciatica a lot and I,ve also had a frozen shoulder you think he would benefit from a Cortisone injection?He suggested it but they said no..they also said it might just go away overnight even though they maintain its not a trapped nerve..they seem to be contradicting themselves! Hope you can advise as he s in constant pain and getting no sleep

Hi,I have been using scissors heavily at work for around a week, and 5 days ago part of my left thumb went numb. When applying pressure to the base of my thumb, pins and needles would shoot up to the numb area. My thumb is still in this condition, and I am wondering whether it needs treatment or if it will heal of its own accord, as I believe I have some sort of bruised nerve.
